Abstract

original image

3D hybrid colloidal spheres with integrated functions and collective properties are fabricated by X. Yan, Y. Li, and co-workers on page 2663 using a variety of common, inorganic nano-objects as building blocks in association with polyelectrolyte encapsulation through a facile template strategy. This simple and controllable strategy is suited to the design and fabrication of functional colloidal spheres, thereby allowing the development of new multifunctional hybrid materials.
